Google Employee Hides Easter Eggs in Translator

InvisblePinkUnicorn writes "I was looking up information on a painting of Ivan the Terrible, and needed to translate some pages from Russian. Babelfish was working alright, but Google Translate seemed more convenient. It was then that I noticed something strange — every page translated by Google replaced one form of Ivan's Russian name with "Abraham Lincoln". For example: this brief biography. Did Google create its translation table inhouse, or outsource it from some other company? Can anyone else find similar examples of this?"
